Description

Looks like Facebook is inserting a very long URL in the website URL field from the comment form - a URL which is visible by clicking the "change" link in "You are commenting using your Facebook account. ( Log Out / Change )"

The length of that URL must vary by FB account, because I'm getting one of 195 characters when testing, while another user got one over 200 when trying to comment on my wordpress.com-hosted blog, triggering the error message.

I propose you raise the length limit to fix this problem.
